​​The Impacts of Gun Violence

One in every two Americans is impacted by gun violence in their lifetime. Every year nearly 40,000 Americans are killed by gun violence leading to over 100 deaths a day. Over the past decade gun violence deaths increased by over 20%.

Gun violence is any violence committed by the use of a gun including suicide, homicide, police shootings, unintentional firearm death rates, and unknown causes. Unintentional firearm death rates are highest among Black Americans and American Indian/Alaska Natives. Nearly one-quarter of all unintentional firearm deaths are 0-19 years old.
